Hey guys. I want everyone's feedback on a new event selector we are proposing for LGM.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/404

I know many of you have had frustration and find the current event selection unintuitive. Because of that, Josh created a mockup which is a critique of the GM5 event selector which I used to design the one in the pull request. You can download a prerelease jar of the changes in a zip from my pull request. I want to know what you guys think and whether I should merge it or if we should move forward with the event selection we already have.

I had previously been criticized by Josh for combining the Add/Replace/Duplicate options into "Modify" which is synonymous with "Edit" and thus confused him. I am taking a poll now to avoid making similar mistakes. The only way I can conceive of every imaginable criticism before merging this is to simply ask the community. So this is your chance to let your opinion be heard. Please let me know how you feel about this, thanks!

NOTE: Please understand that I am already aware the "Context" (previously "Object Window") resource menu breaks when you load a project. This is not a regression and exists in lgm16b4 too. I've filed a separate issue for this because I don't want to conflate it here. It will be fixed later on.

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

With 3 yays in the poll, plus 3 yays from me, Josh, and Rusky, that makes 6 yays and 0 nays. I think the yays have it, so I've merged the new event selector. I am glad everybody likes it, I put a lot of careful attention and hard work into getting it right. You can download the official 1.8.53 release on GitHub now. Cheers!

PS: This doesn't mean we are finished revising the event selector or not taking further suggestions. Please feel free to continue commenting on it.

It's always a pleasure to work in LGM, ever since I updated to Windows 10 and using the latest JAVA, LGM has become far more stable now, I've been able to work several hours at a time before getting the crash and needing to restart, it is far more stable than before (this is not related to the updated though).  As far as the new event selector, it's nice, at first I had mixed feelings on the icon only approach but then I noticed the tool tips, so overall it's a nice change and easy to get used to.  Thanks Goombert and all - at least we have a decent IDE to work inside of, not the major FUCK UP of an IDE of GMS2.
